The harp is a unique instrument in that it can create an atmosphere of elegance and beauty, while at the same time being unobtrusive. It can set the tone of your special event, and at the same time provide space and flexibility for the elements of your event to occur. Having an idea about including the harp in your event is wonderful. But knowing how to make that happen in the way that you envision is my job. I can help you to find all the different musical possibilities, and then make it happen for you in a way that is uniquely tailored to suite the flavor and theme of your special occasion. You might be planning a small, intimate gathering, an anniversary dinner for two, a wedding for 500 guests or a large corporate function. The size and scope of each function varies. I can provide many stylistic options for music, ranging from classical and Celtic music, through popular and broadway themes, to Jazz, 40s and 50s hits and even classic rock and the Beatles. If you interested in learning how to play the harp yourself, then we can embark on a wonderful journey together exploring all the musical possibilities of this instrument. I can help you to rent or buy a harp and get you started with lessons. Now that you have an idea about what it is like to work with a musician, give me a call and we will go through the process together.

Job Opening

I’m looking for a part time showroom manager, some flexibility with hours. Could become a bigger job if you’d like as the year progresses.

Your primary focus would be on keeping the showroom in order and meeting with customers, talking with them on the phone. Keeping track of inventory (harp covers and accessories). Helping with packing harps, shipping strings and accessories, helping with repairs if you are up for that, (minor) and some trips to the post office. Sometimes a rental harp needs to be delivered - not often but sometimes. Sometimes a customer or elderly student needs one of us to go and tune her harp or put in a new string..... but mostly you will be in the showroom. Sometimes some restringing of harps. A little bit of paperwork around selling and renting harps. Some additional supporting tasks for the business as needed. So a multifaceted harp world job! Some teaching if you are interested but it’s not necessary to the position. Please email: [email protected] or text: 626.437.8774

Camac Harps

https://www.camac-harps.com/en/blog/latest/born-alchemy-artists-artisans-together-paris/

On the Camac blog, we report on a beautiful day of artists and artisans, presenting our "Canopée" and "Art Nouveau" together in Paris.

The day was also a good opportunity to explore our use of fine/precious woods, for example Macassar Ebony for the Canopée. In the course of this article, we explain how we always use woods from certified sustainable sources (FSC-PEFC). In the case of our ebony, we use Amara Macassar, a farmed species grown as a sustainable alternative to the protected, “true” Macassar ebony. A similar example would be the use of sustainable, Brazilian Santos rosewood, instead of Brazilian Rio rosewood, which is critically endangered.

The use of environmentally-responsible equivalents is part of all serious twenty-first-century craftsmanship. If you have any questions about our harp making, transparency is very important to us, so do get in touch at any time.
